Players to watch:
Arjun Kumal: Nepal’s opening batter Arjun Kumal was dismissed for a golden duck in the previous match. He will look to bounce back with a good inning.
Dev Khanal: Nepal’s captain, Dev Khanal, scored a century in the last game. Given his prior experience with the senior team and wealth of cricketing knowledge, Dev may well deliver another substantial innings if Nepal gets the chance to bat first.
Dipesh Kandel: The left-arm orthodox bowler has been a consistent performer for the Nepalese youth side. He picked up three wickets with an economy of under one so, Kandel can be a big threat for Bahrain alongside his spinning partner Subash Bhandari.
